Overseer E2 (2412m/7914') summit (gigapixel)

View from the summit of Overseer E2 (elev. 2,412m) near Pemberton, British Columbia.  It follows the ridge leading up to the higher Overseer Mountain in the Pemberton Icefield area w/ a fantastic 360 degree view in all directions.  To the east, one can see distant Mt. Matier in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, south towards Garibaldi Park including Mt. Currie, Mt. Weart & Wedge Mountain.  To the south is the fantastic view of the icefield though much of the glaciers are still covered by snow having been a wet winter season.  Most of the glaciers have no name & are collectively part of the icefield.  Further north is Mt. Athelstan to which a large pumice mining operation lies at its base.  Further northeast are additional peaks that span the divide between the Lillooet River Valley & Gold Bridge.  This summit is named but not officially ranked.  Summits in Canada need to have 500 feet (152 metres) of topographic prominence to be a ranked summit.  Within Canada, a main summit may have a number of false summits; these summits are given the name of the main summit followed by a cardinal direction followed by a number corresponding the which false summit it is.  In this case, Overseer E2 is the second false summit east of Overseer Mountain.


The Pemberton Icefield is the SMALLEST of several massive icefields that inundate the Pacific Ranges of British Columbia.  At 300 square kilometres in size, it is roughly 5x larger than the island of Manhattan.  There are many moraine scars visible showing just how much larger the icefield was when the Little Ice Age terminated around 1840.  Even in recent years the glaciers have been receding rapidly.  Many of the peaks particularly facing northwest are exceedingly remote & have perhaps seen only an ascent once in the past 100 years (if any at all).  One of my favorite mountaineers I've read up on was John Clarke, an avid mountaineer who made hundred of first ascents in this mountain range stretching clear up to Alaska.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
